Second instalment to the Android Series:






Thank you my dear husband Keith `zerocomplex and Sam ^sphilr for always anticipating work-in-progresses. Also, the birds have been named by my darling Gillian *lolitaAgogo - the top one is Arrow and the lower one is Pekoe :heart:


It is truly fascinating to explore so many angles and perspectives with this subject matter. Having finally read Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, re-watched both Ghost In The Shell and Innocence for the up-teenth time, and discussing with my husband, I am very happy to have gained deeper insight and understanding.

I hope you will enjoy this series as I explore further in.



Thank you so much for looking :iconkissmeeplz:

Surrealism is always a fascinating movement, where you can go beyond the limits of human perception and captivate the world with your own vision of things.
The composition is very well done, and there`s either nothing missing nor exceeded.
It`s an interesting way of reresenting the masculine and femenine aspects, united by a little detail, the blue flower (which I strongly believe reflects hope)
The birds are another strong point, and only by looking at them I recognize Snowmask`s works :heart:
The hands, which generally are hard to draw for most artists, look very fluid and very lively :D
Everything seems so balanced, filled with harmony that you could stare at this forever...

There are very few times that an second piece could surpass the first one. However, this piece "Love Us Harder" is one of those amazing exceptions. The first one was amazing enough as it was, but this just blows the previous one away.

From the digits on the machine-like beings fingers to the flowers floating around them, the detail is impressive to say the least. The spinal columns and nerve endings on the two subjects look well-depicted as are the cracks in the skull above it. The joints looks great as well as are the strange openings underneath the sides of their cheeks. The birds sitting upon the women's heads are so vibrant in color and you can almost see them looking about their surroundings with a mix of amazement and internal knowing of what's going on.

The colors used are just as beautiful and the scrap it originated from. A great use of colors and shading really makes the design jump off of the screen and into the viewers' mind.

All in all this a breathtaking piece. But it makes you wonder for a short moment. The way they looks similar and are barely making contact, almost as if it's a mirror image of the other. Its almost as if no matter what happens there will always be another part of you that's simply out of reach (Perhaps I'm looking too deeply into this). Bottom line is the piece looks amazing and would be another great addition to anyone's favorites.
